Scott faced a dilemma. He already had more than 300 servers and two were being added weekly. New server security requirements placed on his organization required the archiving of six months of Windows event log data – not just security event log data. That in itself was a challenge, not to mention expanding log file storage requirements to consider. Furthermore, to complicate matters, his team’s highly secure environment utilized server hardening processes which prohibited the necessary network access usually required for such a robust event log audit and collection solution.
Given today’s ever growing list of requirements and tasks on network security professionals’ desktops, you or someone on your team no doubt identifies with the demands placed on Scott. Add to this the additional pressure of keeping costs down and displaying ROI (and displaying it soon).
If this scenario is familiar, you know that your organization is often asking you to deliver the features of a high-end luxury sports car on a budget better suited for public transportation. Network security professionals realize that it requires more than just the Windows event viewer to accomplish comprehensive log management. And, if the tasks were to be accomplished manually instead, rarely would management offer the funding to add more staff.
Demands like these do put IT professionals at a distinct disadvantage when it comes to accomplishing necessary tasks. There is an easy solution – Scott implemented Event Archiver ®, our flagship software. This event log collection and audit solution provides the level of flexibility, automation and quick rollout that the job requires. He was also able to leverage Dorian Software’s volume discounts to stay within his budget while putting an enterprise level solution immediately to work.
